New book delivered

Tina Smith (who writes as “Tina Gower”) and I have delivered our Stellar Guild “team-up” book, which is titled INCI. Stellar Guild is a line of books I edit for Arc Manor, wherein a major writer teams up with a protégé of the writer’s (not the editor’s) choice. The first seven in the series have featured Kevin J. Anderson, Mercedes Lackey, Harry Turtledove, Robert Silverberg, Nancy Kress, Eric Flint, and Larry Niven and their protégés. This will be the eighth. I’ll post a publication date as soon as I know when it will be.

Wordfire Press just brought out a lovely edition of my novel, The Dark LadyThe Dark Lady Mike Resnick,  the 100,000-franc prrize, and the Mayor of Paris. It did pretty well here 25 years ago, and 15 years ago it became the only American novel ever to win the Prix Tour Eiffel (that’s a photo of me, a facsimile of the 100,000-franc check that went to the winner, and the Mayor of Paris). Anyway, the book’s available from the usual places, in trade paper and e-book
